Some explanation of what these new options do might be nice; the
features/benefits they enable.
Are any of the options generally useful? If so, should they be enabled
You also didn't Cc Tom Warren (Tegra maintainer) so he likely won't see
the emails and hence won't apply this patch.
Thanks for the reply Stephen! I will add Tom Warren to Cc next time.
Bootmenu allows to create user friendly menu to choose different boot
options. For example next 3 lines in boot config
setenv bootmenu_0 "Boot kernel = setenv bootargs ..."
setenv bootmenu_1 "Boot recovery = setenv bootargs ..."
will generate bootmenu with 3 options:
*** U-Boot Boot Menu ***
Press UP/DOWN to move, ENTER to select
More information about bootmenu is available at doc/README.bootmenu
OK. Might it be better to use an extlinux.conf file? It already has
support for displaying a menu for all the options in the file, and
allowing the user to select which to boot. (Although I suspect the
extlinux.conf menu could be prettied up some). I suppose your example
above are more than just selecting which kernel to boot though, so
perhaps extlinux.conf wouldn't work.
I was focused on console part for this RFC. This patch is for testing
purposes. I will use tegra config instead of paz00 next time to allow
other users of tegra devices to try changes.
